  • Reclaiming the Brainwashed Generation

    07/16/2020 10:09:49 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 15 replies ^ | July 16, 2020 | Jeff Davidson
    As with legions of others in his generation, my nephew has been brainwashed by years of less-than- honest educators. When it comes to U.S. history, he knows precious little about the Constitution and proclaimed that he “doesn’t care much about the Constitution,” which actually protects him every day. He claims that it is an old document and that while some parts of the Constitution might be good, “some parts are awful.” In a vigorous email exchange, when I asked him to identify an awful part, he took a long time to reply. Then he referred to slaves in the South...

    The Imaginative Conservative ^ | July 13th, 2020 | Michael J. Connolly
    There is a Tory tradition in America that runs against the grain of establishment Liberalism, embracing home, hearth, community, family, church, nature, and the moral realities of everyday life, and opposed to individualism, unlimited free markets, libertarianism, secularism, and the rootless loneliness of global modernity. This tradition comes from within America, not without. Conservatism, a movement built in the unique pressures of the Cold War, is metamorphosing into new forms. The Cold War is long over. New considerations based on new circumstances are emerging on the Rightin the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United Statesthat closely resemble those of Saintsburys...

    As part of the wave of tearing down symbols of historic racism., Mississippi State Governor Tate Reeves, a Republican, signed legislation last month ordering the prompt, dignified, and respectful removal of the state flag bearing the rebel symbol from all state property. Mississippi was the only state whose flag contained the Confederate battle flag, adopting it in 1894, nearly three decades after the Civil War. 64% of voters reaffirmed the flag in a 2001 referendum. In the wake of the race riots sweeping across the country, Reeves decided to introduce the new legislation calling to redesign the flag. I know...
  • Sen. Tammy Duckworth: Trump Spent His Entire Mt. Rushmore Speech 'Talking About Dead Confederates'

    07/05/2020 10:58:22 AM PDT · by jazusamo · 66 replies ^ | July 5, 2020 | Beth Baumann
    Video at link. President Donald Trump's 4th of July speech at Mt. Rushmore Friday night focused on the United States' history and legacy in the world. He also addressed the issue with cancel culture advocates trying to completely shatter American history by pulling down monuments and statues. But, according to Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), the president's speech should have focused on the 130,000 Americans who died as a result of the Wuhan coronavirus and the bogus story about Russia putting a bounty on American troops' heads. "Where does it end? Should statues, for example, of George Washington, come down?" CNN's...
  • Cancel culture liberals need to leave John 'The Duke' Wayne alone!

    American Thinker ^ | July 5, 2020 | Lloyd Marcus
    My wife Mary has a habit of disturbing my peace by reading me headlines and news stories from her phone that annoy me. Thus, I learned that Black Lives Matter domestic terrorists seek to cancel legendary American actor and icon John Wayne. Outrageously, Orange County's Democratic Party is pushing to remove Wayne's name from the county's airport. This is ironic because John Wayne played a role in my becoming renowned, loved, and hated for proclaiming myself an "Unhyphenated American." Decades ago, I awoke to learn that I could no longer refer to myself as a black man. The decree demanded...

    Every time some supposed conservative or Republican explains why he or she cant vote for President Trump, I wonder if they have thought about the alternative the Biden-Schumer-Pelosi machine. Our choice in November will not be between President Trump and President Perfection. It will be between President Trump and a nightmare that would end America as we have known it. If former Vice President Joe Biden wins, it means the turnout in favor of Democrats will be such that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., remains leader of a Democratic majority in the House. It also means that Democrats will...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) A proposal to establish a task force to study and prepare recommendations for how to give reparations to African Americans passed the California Assembly on Thursday. The bill advanced with a 56-5 vote as protests nationwide over police brutality re-energized the movement for racial justice and activists pressed for sweeping reforms. It is a top priority for California's Legislative Black Caucus.

    Two revealing falsehoods have been foisted on a taciturn populace. One, that the raging mob violence has really anything to do about George Floyd, Black Lives Matter, or opposition to police brutality. Two, the rioters and looters, largely spearheaded by Antifa, are similar to the heroes who landed on in the beaches of Normandy under a hail of heavy machinegun fire. It’s a stirring version of alternate history. And it may even win Pulitzer Prize one day. But both these arguments were exposed as baseless, however, by the recent days of mayhem and violence across Europe.What we’re currently witnessing...

    Cops has been taken off the force: The long-running reality TV pioneer has been cancelled at Paramount Network following a nearly seven-year run there, our sister site Deadline is reporting. Cops is not on the Paramount Network, and we dont have any current or future plans for it to return, a network spokesperson said in a statement. The groundbreaking docuseries, which followed real law enforcement professionals from around the country as they patrolled the local streets and arrested criminals, debuted back in 1989 on Fox, airing there on Saturday nights for more than two decades until it was cancelled in...

    By now, you have probably heard that the Minneapolis City Council plans to completely disband the Minneapolis Police Department, and other major cities are considering significant cuts to the funding that their police departments receive. Needless to say, such moves will only make our streets even more unsafe, but a lot of people out there are so upset about police brutality that they are ready to support such drastic measures. In the aftermath of 9/11, police departments all over the country were heavily militarized, and thousands of troops returning from our wars overseas were hired as officers. This shift in...

Youve heard me say this I dont know how many times. Maybe youre a little tired of hearing me say it. The Democrat Party has been promising utopia. And yet where is all this police brutality happening? In Democrat blue states. Its so bad that theyre...

Without any questions whatsoever, it's a noble demonstration and it's clearly far overdue, says Lenny Lanteigne. It was unfortunate that a few hooligans turned it into a free-for-all, he says. It is awful. But next to what some people are going through, this is nothing. The stores insurance company is currently reviewing the damage, and Lanteigne isnt sure yet how itll all turn out financially, he said. The...

    As left-wing Democrat-controlled states continue to keep people in lockdown, it is becoming apparent that they are using the pandemic as a means to gain ultimate control of people's lives. In fact, leftists the world over are exploiting the pandemic in order to create their alleged utopias. Vanessa Vallejo, a Colombian activist and columnist explains that Whenever they come to power, communists work hard to create a clientele network that will vote for them and support them in the future. So instead of looking for real solutions to lift people out of poverty altogether, they offer them subsidies or useless...

    Did you notice that the standard used to attack Brett Kavanaugh was quickly jettisoned when the accused was Joe Biden? Or that the standard Joe Biden imposed on every male college student in the country suddenly became unfair when it was applied to Biden himself? It makes you wonder whether liberals believe in anything other than getting elected and exercising power. Is there a set of beliefs you could confidently identify as comprising the liberal mind? Im not so sure. For most of the past four decades there have been very few times when we have even been bothered by...
